Right, since the last post for the Gonk Droid build, I've had a change of plan colour-wise.
The metallic brown i'd chosen just wasn't working out as I hadn't counted on it being translucent - two 6.99 cans along and it was barely covering, and still showing the scratches and scribbles i'd done on the Grey Primer.
